Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am truly grateful to all of the wonderful, interesting people/families that have come and shared their stories and precious moments appreciating our little paradise here on the hill. My wife, Fina and I bought and reformed the house in 2006. I am a designer and she is a social educator. Together we resolved the living spaces to function well socially and with great natural light. There are high ceilings and traditional clay terra cotta floor tiles most everywhere.

Why the Owner Chose Plaza Toros - Doctores San Lázaro, Granada, Granada, Spain:
Discovering the Albaicin 20 years ago I was overwhelmed by it's incredibly human charm, ancient soul and village-like tranquility. The winding walking streets, flower filled balconies and open-air veggie markets take you in as a welcome visitor. Then of course, the Alhambra Palace is a must-see and the terrace has on of the very best views of it.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The stunning view is probably the most memorable aspect of our place but the village-like tranquility and close proximity to local markets, restaurants and live music help to complete the experience.
